Villa San Michele, San Sano - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 to 8 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

It’s no surprise to discover that the wealthy landowners who once ruled over much of this area chose this villa as their home: the location is glorious and the property itself has good looks in abundance. From its hilltop position in the Chianti region, the beautifully restored stone-built villa offers grand views of the surrounding countryside, not least from the large private pool, furnished pergola or terrace, and with vineyards stretching in all directions, you’ll never be short of a decent glass of wine to enjoy with your lunch or dinner.

Villa San Michele has all the assets of a typically Tuscan property, with wood-beamed ceilings, graceful arches dividing communal rooms and terracotta-tiled floors, and is beautifully furnished with antiques throughout. It will work well for a large group or two small families, with five lounges, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. If you want to eat and relax together, you can; if not, there are enough different dining and lounging areas for everyone to find their own special hideaway. The house makes a perfect base for exploring, with Florence and Arezzo just over an hour’s drive away, Siena even closer, and the Chianti Sculpture Park only 10 minutes’ drive down the road.

 Our Thoughts
Generous helpings of character and space – that’s what you get at this secluded rural property. Indoors, the already large rooms feel even larger thanks to the high beamed ceilings, and the huge inglenook fireplace in the first floor lounge. Outside, the expansive gardens allow you to enjoy sunny Tuscan to the max, with lots of little al fresco seating areas where you can soak up the views from a different perspective every time.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Three bathrooms, two en-suite. Gardens are not fenced, and the pool is unfenced. There is 300 metres of unpaved approach road. The villa owners will accept children under seven years old but prefer not to because of the steep external entrance staircase and the unfenced pool area.
Mosquito Screens In Bedrooms

Pool
The pool is in the garden, surrounded by paving leading to lawn and furnished with loungers with overhead shades. A pergola with table and chairs is just a few steps away. The water can be accessed by internal Roman steps. Pool Size: 10m x 5m, 1.2 - 1.8m deep. Open from April to October, weather depending.

Wir (2 Familien mit Kindern zwischen 9 und 11 Jahren) haben uns eine entspannte Woche in der Toskana gewünscht und haben dies auch zu 100% bekommen. Die Villa San Michele liegt sehr idyllisch außerhalb des kleinen Ortes “San Sano” und bietet viele Sitzmöglichkeiten in dem schönen und gepflegten Garten. Der Pool ist sehr sauber und der Außenbereich wirklich sehr schön angelegt. Der freie Blick auf die wunderschöne Landschaft des Chianti-Gebietes und die Ruhe rund um das Haus haben auch zur Erholung beigetragen. Das Haus ist sehr geräumig im typischen Toskana-Stil erbaut und die Zimmer sind rustikal eingerichtet. Zum Teil fanden wir die die Matratzen sehr weich. Die Küche empfanden wir als etwas dunkel und vor allem die Spülmaschine als sehr klein für die Größe des Hauses. Wir würden die „Villa San Michele“ auf jeden Fall für einen Toskana-Urlaub empfehlen!
Local attractions Das Restaurant "La Grotta della Rana" ist zu Fuß zu erreichen und ist sehr zu empfehlen. Auch die Bar in dem kleinen Nachbarort Lecchi ist sehr nett und man kann dort schön einen Kaffee oder ein Glas Wein trinken.
